Mercury Retrograde has wrought such havoc with my communications this time around that I have been forced to do some serious soul-searching. It all began when a friend of very long standing (since my first days at High School, so 50-odd years ago) completely missed the point of a FaceBook post I shared and –… Continue reading “That Way Madness Lies!”
As it turned out, it was another 7 months before I actually left the BBA Group. In the meantime Mum learned how unwell I had been and we agreed that I should go back to live at home. This was fine, except that while I was away, she had been transferred from our local Seniors’… Continue reading Backing A Loser …
To those of you who are following my blog I owe an apology for the hiatus between my last post and this one. It has been a rather tricky time on the home front and my attention has been diverted elsewhere. However, I’m back so I had better get on with it! I was employed… Continue reading “Beauty” & The Beasts!
I’ve reached the end of my childhood in this blog and the reason I haven’t posted for a while is that I’ve been “taking stock” and thinking hard about how to proceed from here. We’re approaching some of the most traumatic years of my life – years which I believe are both the result of… Continue reading Interlude – No Strings!
Before I move on, I want to tell you what happened when I returned to Walthamstow Girls’ High School that one last time to sit my two early ‘O’ Levels. I stayed with my Dad the night before the exams – luckily I was able to sit them both on the same day – and… Continue reading Farewell To Academe
I have had a week or so off from the blog for “The Festive Season” – blogging while under the influence of “Festive Cheer” is a short road to disaster, as I’m sure you’ll agree. However, I have made a significant breakthrough this holiday which I’m fairly sure I can attribute to the cathartic effect… Continue reading On The Road Again …
Throughout my life I have found it extremely difficult to deal with people who were disposed to bully me. Bullying has been a recurring theme in both my school and my working life, although I am not what you would call the archetypal victim. Again – I’m not sure if this arises from my BPD… Continue reading Not A Freeman’s Daughter
When Mum and I returned from our brief sojourn in Yorkshire, Mum and Dad decided to have marriage counselling with a view to getting their relationship back on track. In addition, and I believe, partly as a result of the aspirin incident, I was sent off to see a Child Psychiatrist as it was felt… Continue reading Bully For Me (Not!)
For the next year or two, the exact chronology of events is a little hazy, so please forgive me if I appear to leap-frog back and forth in time. It’s also from this point onward that things become a little darker and more serious, so once again, forgive me if my humour is a little… Continue reading An “Up & Down” Existence …
To this day, there is one thing which is calculated to make me fly off the handle in spectacular fashion and without much in the way of warning. (It may be occurring to you that I am not an easy person to live with and you would be right!) To be disbelieved or to be… Continue reading “The Affair of the Doll’s Hat”!
